Jaguars sign Daryl Smith to big extension

January 18, 2007

Jacksonville, Fl. - Former Dougherty High star Daryl Smith will be staying with the Jacksonville Jaguars for a long time.

Smith signed a five-year contract extension Thursday that is reportedly worth $25 million.

The new contract will keep the former Georgia Tech star in a Jaguar uniform through the 2012 season.

A second round draft pick in 2004, Daryl Smith led the Jaguars in tackles in 2006.

A feat that was accomplished mostly by Smith's move to middle linebacker after Mike Peterson suffered a season ending injury.

One of the questions the Jaguars have to decide in the offseason is whether to keep Daryl Smith at middle linebacker.
